Free Shipping Day was started in 2008 by Luke and Maisie Knowles of Colorado. The idea was borne out of frustration with paying shipping fees for online purchases. Each year since, more merchants have signed on and a Canadian version was recently added. The event has been well-received and their statistics show that “In 2011, the lowest rate for shopping cart abandonment occurred on Free Shipping Day”.
